Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurses and nurse practitioners care for seriously ill or premature infants in the NICU. The National Certification Corporation (NCC) offers RNC certifications for both Low Risk Neonatal Nursing (RNC-LRN) and Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing (RNC-NIC). The NCC also offers the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP-BC) certification. Professional organizations for neonatal nursing include the Academy of Neonatal Nursing (ANN), the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN), the National Association of Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NANNP, a division of NANN) and the Association of Women?s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses.
